Robert Cirino Quote

“Our major mistakes have not been the result of democracy, but of the erosion of democracy made possible by the mass media’s manipulation of public opinion.”

Who is Mr. Cirino's "Our", as it concerns "major mistakes". In the blame game, there is a LOT! ! ! to go around. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land uses patriarchal authority and benefits, ignorance and propaganda through sheeple's need for democracy, socialism, woke control dogmas, enslavement, etc., etc., etc. "The mass media's manipulation of public opinion" is simply an element of "democracy". By example: how often does the statist theocracy (with its ecclesiastical administrations  complete with black robed high priests / priestesses, seminaries (government schools), missionary MSM, etc.) promote individual sovereignty, personal inalienable rights, liberty, perfected allodium / absolute ownership or "the laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence)?

    Democ, Mob Rule lends itself by far to emotional frenzy, which in turn lacks the commonsense to moderate its behavior. Resulting in overreaction to a given cause. As Mike points out, The Individual Sovereign bearing responsibility with all rights reserved seems to slip by the way. Governing power corrupts itself, when the Individual Sovereign is ignored !!

    Criminals don't do democracy, only the law abiding do democracy.

    Sillik, LOLOLOLOL - hahahahahaha; WHAT? I’ll try to help you out here a bit. A “democracy” most simply is, “majority / mob” rule (NO focus on parts of the numerical majority). A quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin may help in your understanding: “Democracy is two (2) wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for supper. Freedom is a well armed lamb contesting the vote.” Further, Lysander Spooner brought the subject matter some clarity when he said: “A man is none the less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years.” The term and concept “democracy” does not address a form of law other that what the numerically superior would set forth. The term crime you use simply means contradicting what ever the entity with the most guns says. The term “crime against humanity” is an oxymoron unless the mob redefines humanity. If the mob (democracy) says murder, rape and theft are legal, then - under your definition, those parties that commit such acts are not criminals, they are qualified members in good standing in a democracy.
